Holiday Vignettes: Nanci Taylor

        by Steven Doyle

Nanci Taylor, Publisher of Edible Dallas & Fort Worth magazine is starting her third season of production. Nanci’s passion is to promote local food and its sources and artisans, throughout the North Texas area. You may find free copies of the quarterly on stands Whole Foods and North Haven Gardens, as well as many other locations around DFW.You may also read each issue online.

As I have traveled around the city speaking to owners and chefs of Dallas restaurants, many often refer to Nanci as one who carries the torch for the local food movement we have been experiencing over the past few years. I appreciate her enthusiasm and dedication to the cause, and any involvement I have personally as a locavore comes inspired by Nanci.  

Read on as she shares some of her holiday thoughts.

What is a favorite holiday memory?

The pink flocked Christmas tree at my Nanni and Pop’s house decorated with homemade Styrofoam ball ornaments.

Also, one of my favorite ongoing memories of the holiday season is enjoying the company of my sons, Trey and Taylor, who have both been an inspiration to me. I am also fortunate enough to be able to share the holidays with my parents (still spry after 8+ decades) and the rest of my immediate family and close friends.

What would be your holiday wish? 

My holiday wish is that 2012 will be filled with abundance for all of our farmers and ranchers.

What is your favorite Christmas song?

Silent Night.
